The abandonment of our game against Bristol Rovers after 59 minutes last Saturday, has led to a lot of conversation and debate among fans, and our own thoughts on the matter are here.

One hot topic has been the Clubs pricing policy for fans attending a rematch, when they have already bought tickets for the called off game. Up until this week many fans were probably unaware that Swindon Town has a customer charter, that should cover this, and other complaints from the fan base.

To see how Town’s policy on matches abandoned after half time matches holds up against our rivals, we studied the customer charters of every League One club.

The results were very interesting, with eight clubs stating that they offer half-price tickets for a replayed match, one club offering a loosely worded “reduced price”, seven clubs following the model of no refund or reduction for a replayed match, while eight clubs (including Swindon) having an unclear, or not stated, policy.

The wordings all vary, but are listed below so take the time to read if you wish.

This means that if we take the view that all clubs with an unclear policy offer no refunds or reductions for 2nd half abandoned matches, then 15 out of the 24 clubs in League One would have followed the line that Swindon Town took.

At the very least, it would appear that at least seven other League One clubs would definitely have taken the same action.

It’s an interesting perspective on a debate that has dominated the headlines.

Does this change your view of the situation at all? Should all Clubs agree a uniform policy to be fair to all supporters?

Please let us know!
